Obama, Pelosi, Lame Duck Democrats are Deaf, Dumb and Blind
The Democratic party majority failed miserably on November 2nd, after only four years. President Barack Obama has lost all his credibility, capital, and mojo in just two short years after a stunning victory. The Democratic party has been given an eviction notice, but despite reality, they plow on.
Failure 1: Eric Holder and his Justice Department received a shocking rebuke in the trial of terrorist Ahmed Ghailani, who was tried in a civilian court for his role in the 1998 bombings of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. This was the first attempt by Eric Holder to try a Guantanamo detainee in a U.S. court and not a military tribunal.
The jury convicted Ghailani of a single count of conspiracy to destroy US buildings and property. He faces a minimum of 20 years behind bars, but was acquitted of 224 counts of murder, one for each victim who died in the attacks.
This means that KSM; Khalid Sheik Mohammed, will never be tried in New York City, or any where in the United States. Say good bye to Obama’s desire for “Social Justice” in place of the U.S. Constitution. Say good bye to Holder – who will be sacked before too long.
Failure 2: Obamacare; 111 waivers have been granted to companies and unions. This means they can offer their better programs to their employees, while the rest of us will be forced to bend to the federal regulations. Michelle Malkin names McDonald’s, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Jack in the Box. But the biggest beneficiaries are the SEIU and other unions who supported Obama’s run for President. How do you spell payback, or better yet, kickback. So much for “if you like your insurance you can keep it.”, but with strings attached. Read, “Where’s My Obamacare Waiver?” Better yet, call the White House and ask for your waiver.
Failure 3: The Bush Tax cuts expire on January 1, 2011. The current lame duck session must move on extending them or every tax payer will see an increase in their taxes. Obama and Pelosi are stuck ideologically on not extending the cuts to those making over $250,000 a year. This also includes the Estate tax, going from 0 to 55%! In this economy, the Democrats only believe in class warfare.
Failure 4: Obama is desperate to push the new START treaty through Congress. With luck it will stall and when the House Republican majority takes over in January, they’ll let the President know that this is DOA. The treaty weakens the U.S. defense shield and hands over nuclear power dominance to the Russians. Obama has already stated that he will not upgrade the current arsenal and under New START, the U.S. cuts more weapons and launchers than Russia, giving them a 10 to 1 ratio over NATO. The Heritage Foundation explains 10 reasons why this treaty is terrible.
Failure 5: The DREAM Act, just keeps coming back, thanks to Harry Reid. No matter how it is spun, this is another back door Amnesty for Illegal Aliens. It opens a crack in the door to gain bigger gains for those that broke the law and entered this country illegally. The Democrats want more Hispanic voters to vote for them, national security and borders be damned. I speak as an immigrant who became a proud U.S. citizen LEGALLY.

There are just twelve legislative days left to this session, don’t just sit back and bitch, but be pro active and call your Senator and Congressman to let them know you will not let the Democrats and Obama hold us hostage to their left wing policies. Get angry, call, it is our country and our government; own it!
